Case Studies




Bologna is a medium-sized city in Northern Italy and the capital of the Emilia Romagna Region, located in a strategic position at a compulsory point of passage as a transport hub for goods and people from the North to the South. The city of Bologna can be considered as a good example in the evolution of the approach to the historic city, by virtue of both the key role played in the conservation movement of historic centers since 1960s, and of the ongoing regeneration strategies related to the development of planning instruments in the last decade.
